I am trying to identify a Haviland France pattern name so I can locate and buy additional pieces for my parent's Christmas gift.
The pattern number is 33559. "Decorated by Haviland & Co. Limoge" is in Pink/Red/Rust. "Haviland France" is in Green.
The plates are white with a pattern around the rim <.5 inches wide.
The pieces are not scallopped.
Handles on the serving pieces are painted solid gold.
The rim of each plate has gold, then a thin black line then a chain of yellow half circles - each bordered by 9 or 10 gold beads (each bead is outlined in black and connected to the next bead).
The set we have was purchased in the 1920's or 1930's...probably at a department store in St. Louis Mo.
Thank you for your help.
